Additional Updates & Guidelines

  • The studio (ie mats, restrooms, equipment, etc.) will follow daily cleaning guidelines and schedules
  • Restrooms will be cleaned throughout the day.  Adequate soap and hand washing abilities will be provided and required by all students and staff
  • Hand sanitizer will also be available for students before and after class, and as they re-enter from any trips to the restroom
  • One way entrances and exits have been established to create safe and proper flow of students coming and going.  The air circulation within the studio consists of central air combined with new filtration systems called iWave which work to increase the filtering out of dust, allergens, mold, and viruses
  • Sign-in will be touch-free with the safe assistance of our staff at the front desk
  • Students will be asked to enter the studio only under the direction of a staff member calling them in from the parking area or sidewalk once the previous class has exited and proper cleaning has taken place.  Students may line up on a pre-marked line in front of the building to allow for proper spacing and wait under the overhang until called in.  During inclement weather, students will come in immediately and line up in the hallway of the lobby in the same way
  • Students should come fully dressed in their uniform and already have their belt on prior to entry
  • No bags of any kind will be permitted into the building at this time.  The only extra items permitted would be if there is a weapon that a class is currently using, and a water bottle if needed
  • Students should bring their own water bottle for class, as the communal water fountain/bubbler will not be available until further notice
  • There will be limited contact between any of the students (ie. sparring, defense, partner workouts, etc.)
  • Children are advised to wear footwear that is both fast and easy to remove and put back on independently

Face Masks
As of Monday, January 3rd 2022, we are requiring that all staff, guests and students wear a proper face covering while in the studio (neck gators are not permitted at this time). This is regardless of any vaccination/booster status and applies to both students training, guests accompanying them, and any other children who may be watching class. We will continue to monitor and adjust policies as needed and we appreciate everyone’s respectful support as we navigate the winter months together.

  • Students in any of our kids’ classes must wear face masks at all times when inside the studio (this includes entry/exit, restrooms, and training space).  Masks should adhere to CDC recommendations including covering both the mouth and nose and having a proper fit around the face.  Reusable masks should be washed/dried in heat after each use; or if disposable, discarded appropriately and not reused
  • Students wearing masks should avoid touching their face covering whenever possible and be sure to clean their hands properly before putting it on or taking it off
  • Students in only our Junior Black Belt & Adult Martial Arts classes are allowed to unmask for their training, if and only if, they are fully vaccinated and are beyond the recommended 2 week waiting period following their final dose.  This applies to both students and staff working within these specific classes. Students or staff who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear face coverings/masks during their training and moving about the studio
  • Live streaming of all classes will be available for both students at home and for families who are waiting for their children at the studio.  We invite you to tune in with us during your child’s class from your vehicle using the same method as the students to log in
  • Drop off and pick up will not allow for curbside pull-up.  All families must park first in a designated parking space and then safely cross their child into the coned area where students will make their way into the studio under the guidance of a staff member
  • Please be aware of students and families crossing into the coned area and we ask that all families triple check around their vehicle before pulling in and out of parking spots.  Please reduce speed pulling into the lot and exiting the lot
  • Although mask usage is not required when outdoors in the viewing areas, please be aware of other families/students and maintain safe and appropriate distance between parties.  If distancing cannot be maintained safely and you or your guest are not vaccinated, please use a face covering to protect yourself and those around you
  • All students will be required to pre-register for each class on a first come first serve basis using our software/website
  • Families will be asked to create a user account with this software.  In a few easy steps, you will be set up to register for your classes
  • Students will not be permitted into a class unless their name is on the corresponding pre-registration list.  Please always check for booking confirmation via email prior to arriving at the studio to prevent being turned away from class due to capacity being reached
  • If you need to cancel your pre-registration, we ask that you do so minimally 24 hours ahead of time by emailing us at info@rockysilvasamericankarate.com
  • The following week’s class can be reserved after your child’s class time begins on Monday the week prior:
    • Little Champs can register beginning at 3:45pm on Mondays for the following week
    • Basic Training can register beginning at 4:00pm on Mondays for the following week

    • JR. BLACKS can register beginning at 7:00pm on Mondays for the following week
    • ADULTS can register beginning at 7:45pm on Mondays for the following week
  • Our website has a how-to guide on how to set up your user account and register each week
  • We ask that students register for only 1 in-person class a week ahead, and wait until the week of your training to search for a 2nd in-person class

We will be offering Hybrid Learning:

  • Zoom classes will be the live streaming of in-person classes and will follow the same schedule.  You may join your class on Zoom with no pre-registration required
  • Students who opt not to attend in-person training may continue their training remotely by attending 2 Zoom classes each week
  • Students attending 1 in-person class per week should also supplement their training with 1 Zoom training per week
  • Students who are able to attend 2 in-person classes per week do not need to supplement their training with any live Zoom classes unless they wish
  • For proper learning retention and longevity for your student and their success, we ask that all families maintain the required 2 classes per week; not more or less per week
